We noted here a week ago the tepid reaction of Claremont McKenna College to the violent disruption of Heather Mac Donald’s appearance there a few weeks ago, printing the entirety of Dean Peter Uvin’s lugubrious memo to the faculty that outlined how to let off the offending students.
Now comes word out of Middlebury College about the punishment to be meted out to the students who violently assaulted Charles Murray and sent Middlebury professor Alison Stanger to the hospital with whiplash and a concussion. According to John Leo at Minding the Campus, the offending student are . . . going to have a letter of reprimand placed in their file. A temporary letter at that, as the letter will be removed if the student commits no further infractions before the end of the school year. No wonder Middlebury tried to keep the details of their “punishment” secret.
So that’s it rioters: if you get caught, Middlebury will . . . send you a letter! Written in disappearing ink. That’ll show ’em.
